Service disruption

Here is the latest information on disruption to the normal service outlined in the timetable above:

  • From Monday 8 November the Road Train will be unavailable while essential maintenance is performed. This is expected to take several weeks


  • Leaves the museum every 30 minutes, 11.00–16.00

While we make every effort to keep our road train running, the service is subject to availability and maintenance work. Road Train is subject to a vehicle special order and we are unable to change our existing route between the National Railway Museum and Duncombe Place, next to York Minster.
